“Perfect fare for lunch at the beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Basic decor for a board rider bar. The location is prime. They have daily specials like Margarita Mondays for $4. Salads, wraps, burgers, fish tacos. All were great. We visited twice in 4 days.

“Great Stop in Luquillo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place has good food and service on the beach with a great atmosphere.
We were staying in San Juan but were out this way to visit El Yunque. We were told by a local that the beaches of Luquillo were beautiful and worth a visit. We arrived and I was starving. This place was right on the beach. Luquillo is super laid back and so was this place. It might be slightly pretentious (the servers too) but it was a great experience. We most definitely could have been somewhere in the U.S., which we found very interesting.
The service was good; not the most friendly; but nevertheless, good. I got the quesadilla, which was very tasty with house-made pico de gallo. Also, there special sauce on the table- a hot sauce with papaya is fantastic! My husband got the special, which was bahia fish taco (tilapia). It had a house-made corn salsa on top. He enjoyed it. I was surprised that it tasted somewhat fishy. Tilapia is usually very mild and easy to get fresh since its mostly farm raised. We also got the potato wedges, which were very good.
The prices were fair and the atmosphere was great. If we lived in Luquillo, we would go here often.

“Fresh fish tacos; good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The servers were great. I think our server was the owner. He suggested the fish tacos, and there were really good. Great location right on the beach. Very laid back atmosphere.

“Good burgers!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

If you're in need of a burger fix, this is THE place to come!
Fun young friendly staff (although someone needs to teach the bar staff how to make a proper margarita - they taste of gum/candy!?)

“Perfect casual dinner and night out on the beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Boardriders was the perfect place for a casual "night out". We went for dinner and stayed for the Painkillers. Staff made us feel like regulars! Food is good, light and a nice variety of menu. A reggae band one night was an extra treat and was the talk of breakfast at our hotel the next morning.
